About The Franklin Bookstore

The Franklin Bookstore began in 1996 by Robert & Ruth Lynn in Humboldt, Tennessee. Retiring from the Navy and a business career and always a history buff, Robert and Ruth opened the business of selling and dealing with rare books, magazines and newspapers. Many items were acquired from other rare books dealers from across the country. The Franklin Bookstore continues with his offspring mindful to keep the high ethical business examples that Dad established. We feel honored to be associated with such a virtual history of the printed word, inherently beautiful and fascinating artifacts of our cultural past. Every item we offer is guaranteed to be absolutely genuine and as described. A large part of the inventory is periodicals that date from the Revolutionary War to World War II and into the 21 century.
